Julie Hyde and Jamie Wright recognized by the Higher Education Academy

Julie HydeDr. Julie Hyde, one of our senior University Teachers, was recently achieved the status of Senior Fellow of the Higher Education Academy (SFHEA). At the same time, one of our GTAs, Jamie Wright, a PhD student in the Brammer group achieved the status of Fellow of the Higher Education Academy. Both achieved this milestone through the University's Learning & Teaching Professional Recognition Scheme (LTPRS). This scheme is aligned to the UK Professional Standards Framework (UKPSF) for Teaching and Supporting Learning in Higher Education which is a nationally recognised framework for benchmarking success within higher education teaching and learning support. It provides a framework that enables staff to achieve professional recognition by the Higher Education Academy (HEA).

Jamie WrightJulie said: "I found it valuable to reflect on my work as a University Teacher and for the case studies but also making sure that the portfolio was suitably cross linked with my evidence from a wide range of my teaching experiences. By achieving the SFHEA I hope to share this knowledge with others and help them achieve their award. The main challenge for me was that I had to submit the whole portfolio electronically, and then as it turned out while I was in China!

Thanks also go to the LRTPS team for valuable discussions and support throughout the duration of submission of the award. I am looking forward to the award celebration event at the University."

Jamie noted:"Thanks to the GTA programme I've been able to teach and support learning across a diverse range of activities in our Department. This has included tutorials, lab' demonstrating, supervising MChem students and even experience in Nanjing. Recognising this work with the Fellowship is fantastic, and I couldn't have done it without the support of the LTPRS and Dr Julie Hyde."

Congratulations to both! The official announcement can be found here.
